A Jawa and BB-8 Come Together in This Awesome Star Wars Costume

When Jen and John of EPBOT put their creativity into a costume, the results are always impressive. We’ve featured their Labyrinth Junk Lady costume in the past, for example. For the recent Star Wars Celebration Orlando, they created a Jawa with BB-8. Yep. It has moving parts, sound effects, and all kinds of magic. The build features all sorts of little details with the Jawa’s bag featuring various droid parts and spot on desert weathering. Jen controls the head with a similar method to the Junk Lady. She says:

I control the Jawa’s head much like I did Junk Lady’s; there’s a PVC rod from the base of his head extending into the bag. I can turn and nod the head. I’ve been practicing to make it as lifelike as possible.

You can see what the movement is like in the above video, then check out some stills of the 24 pound ensemble below.
